Why doesn't BMW have a Moto GP racing team?

BMW has a long and successful history in motorsports, but they have no official Moto GP racing team. This is because Moto GP is an expensive sport, and BMW has chosen to focus their motorsport activities on other forms of racing. Additionally, the FIA regulations for Moto GP don't allow the use of production-based engines, which is an area BMW has traditionally excelled in. Finally, the German brand has chosen to focus on other motorsport events that can showcase their vehicles, such as endurance and touring car racing. As a result, BMW has no Moto GP racing team, and likely won't in the future.
